News   Antin and Cunningham's Half-Married Gets MA World Premiere
 
Half-Married, a new comedy about twentysomethings, co-authored by Charles Antin and Ryan Cunningham, will have its world premiere by the F.U.D.G.E. Theatre Company in Watertown, MA.

The non-Equity production will run Jan. 29-Feb. 6 at the Arsenal Center for the Arts Black Box Theatre. F.U.D.G.E. founder and artistic director Joe DeMita will direct.

Cunningham is a Drama Desk nominee for his musical I Love You Because, which was produced by F.U.D.G.E. in 2008, following its 2006 Off-Broadway premiere.

The cast includes Todd Sandstrom, Danielle Sosnowski, Jamianne Devlin and Nate Johnson.

Here's how F.U.D.G.E. bills the production: "Half-Married a sophisticated comedy of modern-day manners, introduces us to two couples: Soren and Stephanie, John and Amanda. All four are young, bright, slightly over-educated, widely read, urban, urbane and erudite. They are all in their late twenties. They are all nice to look at. They are all very funny. And they are all not prepared for the announcement that comes right at the end of Act I. Act II is an emotional roller-coaster ride. It takes place, as does Act I, in Soren and Stephanie's brand-new ground-floor brownstone apartment where the couple has decided to begin their not-yet-married life together."

The production will have costumes by Tina Cersosimo, lighting by Jim Petty and scenery by Joe DeMita. For tickets, priced $20, phone (781) 245-0500 or visit FudgeTheatre. The Arsenal Center for the Arts is located at 321 Arsenal Street in Watertown, MA.
